Manga Sherlock Debuts Only in Japan

Manga Sherlock

Anime News Network has a story reporting that Young Ace magazine will be publishing a manga adaptation of the brilliant BBC series Sherlock. While there have been various Sherlock Holmes comics and manga in the past, this one will adapt specific episodes of the show written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and, based on the cover art, use the character likenesses of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who play Holmes and Watson, respectively.

In the comment thread, someone suggests a crossover with Young Miss Holmes, which would be hilarious.

Watch for this to spawn even more fan fiction and art. My favorite, discovered just today, is this short piece in which Holmes is an alpaca and Watson is a corgi. I don’t know why those animals, particularly, but they’re adorable.
